I really doubt Trump is only 236 pounds. That whole thing is a sham.

It conveniently keeps him under the obese mark.
Canson said on 3/Apr/19
@Viper: I believe he’s 6’7” range peak but not 6’8”. He may even be a hair under 6’7” today from what I’ve heard but it’s likely not by a lot. At his peak he may very well have been 6’7.25 (6’8” out of bed)
Canson said on 2/Apr/19
@Christian: I never considered that. That’s an excellent point and I agree with what you said! Trump only has that “supposed” measurement from the doctor 6’3”. He was never measured is what it really was. I won’t go as far as to say what Viper did that there’s an agenda but I do feel that if we are truly modeling consistency and accuracy, that this listing is the antithesis to both

Canson proballers has 204cm next to every 6-7 listing.

6-2 David Haye looks taller next to Rock than Merriman does.

@Canson
I agree, but there's less ambiguity with Merriman's case than with Trump's. Unlike Trump, Merriman 3 has official measurement listings of 6'2 3/8", 6'2" and 6'4 3/8". Trump only has one official measurement listing, which is 6'3".
viper said on 1/Apr/19
What do you make of the Ed Oliver measurement and scouts saying he's an inch shorter.
viper said on 1/Apr/19
I never said Rock was 6-0. Talk about your fake news :)
viper said on 1/Apr/19
I'm not a downgrader, and I could see Rock was 6-2 back in 2006. Myself and Danimal.
Canson said on 1/Apr/19
@Johan185: All Viper did was show disparity in the pictures. In his defense, he has provided some reasonable estimates here as well
Canson said on 1/Apr/19
@Christian: I probably didn’t clarify enough too. I was saying that with less evidence in Merriman’s case. Not so much less but because of the ambiguity. Trust me, I agree with you and Viper 100% as I always have. Merriman could appear shorter than his listing for sure and taller in some pics but the video is the best piece of evidence. And I’m of the belief that he’s 6’2” range like most here. What I was trying to say was that Rob doesn’t have as much evidence (at least he thinks that he doesn’t have it) with Merriman whereas Trump he does. But I do agree with what you said and it’s not likely he would get sued at all with either guy. In fact Merriman was listing of 6’2” and 6’2 3/8 I think listing him 6’2” range would be perfectly suitable. I stopped fighting it on this page as it’s likely not going to go down much more. 6’3.5 is still way too much for him next to Martellus Bennett. That’s more than 2.25” or even 2 5/8” going off a morning height. That’s minimum 3” and really is over 3”. That’s clear as day that it’s not less than 3”. Since we’ve seen a measurement for Merriman in the 6’2” range and one for Bennett at 6’5.75, I think 6’3” flat would’ve been a lot better than 6’3.5 that he’s listed. While I believe 6’3” is still too much it’s not nearly as bad as 6’3.5 or 6’4” which we can safely rule out
Johan 185 cm said on 1/Apr/19
@Viper

Rock is not under 6'2" but lets be straight I remember you Viper as a serial downgrader here years ago. So lets just say your opinion is worth nothing to me.

Keep living that 6'0" Rock fantasy its hilarious.
viper said on 31/Mar/19
The chances of Merriman suing because you have him at 6-2.5 are zero.
Editor Rob

Here's a tidbit from an article online:

"I once wrote an article about Schwarzenegger in which the editor at The Atlantic, a real stickler for defamation-proof published facts, forced me to use his listed height of 6-foot-2. I still get hate mail about that one from people who think I’m disseminating misinformation, and the comments section is nuts. It’s all dudes railing on me for daring to use the official heights and weights of bodybuilders, even though I was forced by the editor to do so."
viper said on 31/Mar/19
Then why would they have 6-7 there also
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 31/Mar/19
@Canson
Rob lists Trump at 6'0.5" despite his official 6'3" "measurement", but Rob isn't being sued for that. I don't see Merriman ever suing Rob.
viper said on 30/Mar/19
Draftscout has changed their format and it freaking sucks
Canson said on 30/Mar/19
@Viper: but you also see where they gave him 2m04. That’s 204cm which is over 6’8”. I personally believe he’s 6’7” range peak
viper said on 30/Mar/19
Look at this. Ed Oliver supposedly measured 6-1.7 at the combine.

But this guy says scouts have told him he's 6-0.7 Click Here

Looks much more realistic. He doesn't look anywhere close to 6-2.
viper said on 30/Mar/19
So stupid that NFL.com doesn't list pro day measurements anymore
viper said on 30/Mar/19
Johan 185cm said on 28/Mar/19
Had an inch on Dwayne "the rock" johnson so he is at least 6'3".

6-1 Steven Jackson has an inch on Rock. Doesn't make him 6-3
Canson said on 29/Mar/19
@Viper: I thought it was 6’2 3/8 not a flat 6’2
Canson said on 29/Mar/19
@Christian: very well said! I was saying what I did because of the ambiguity meaning the various measurements.

@Viper: I doubt he would but maybe he feels that could be a possibility
Mickie said on 29/Mar/19
I think this one is a lot more representative of how Merriman stacks up with Tebow: Click Here

And Tebow's posture is a bit worse there imo. And still the difference is not large.
cmillzz said on 29/Mar/19
Hard to tell what the true difference is between Merriman and Bennett in that video, it can look a nearly 4 inch difference at times. I will say though that physically, Bennett looks much taller than Merriman.
viper said on 28/Mar/19
Proballers has Buck Williams at 6-7.

Click Here

It also has Grant Hill at 6-7 which he looked up close in person, as far as I could tell as a 13 year old
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Mar/19
@Canson
There are countless examples of celebrities who lied about their height and Rob listed them way shorter than their claims. Look at the Rock for example. He claims 6'5" but Rob lists him at 6'2.5" and it isn't a problem at all. No liability, no anything. Even Trump, who claimed 6'3" and was officially "measured" at 6'3" by his doctor, but Rob lists him at 6'0.5", yet Rob isn't in trouble. If Rob can get away with doing that to the president of one of the most powerful countries in the world, then certainly Rob can get away with doing the same thing to a retired football player like Merriman.
Johan 185cm said on 28/Mar/19
Had an inch on Dwayne "the rock" johnson so he is at least 6'3".
viper said on 28/Mar/19
Go ahead and downgrade him to 6-2.5 Rob
viper said on 28/Mar/19
Canson are you saying Rob would get sued?
Canson said on 27/Mar/19
@Cmillz: only thing is we can’t see footwear with he and Barkley very well. I do have Barkley 194ish today peak 194-195 and Merriman looks worst case 188 most of the time with exception of when Viper met him and guessed 187ish and in the video with Martellus Bennett he also looks 6’1.75. Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine then 6’5.75 at a different time (Viper posted that measurement)

Click Here
viper said on 27/Mar/19
He was measured at 6-2 so he's not even that high
Sakz said on 27/Mar/19
@Canson Yeah exactly. I understand the reasoning and there are different measurements being recorded for Merriman after all, whether he looks the listing or not.
cmillzz said on 26/Mar/19
I don’t know about 6’1.5”, but I don’t really think he’s any taller than 6’2.5”...
cmillzz said on 26/Mar/19
@Viper
He looks 6’2.5” range there with Barkley.
Canson said on 26/Mar/19
@Viper: well said! Other measurements such as Julian Peterson which you mentioned are discrepancy. Peterson shows 6’5.1 and was listed 6’3” when he played. So if he really was 6’3.1 which is likely, he definitely would be something like 6’2.75 (your height)
Canson said on 26/Mar/19
@Sakz: I think what Rob is doing is protecting himself from liability. Since he is not sure exactly how tall he is, he’s simply going with a safe estimate. And Merriman is a guy who has gone as far as to say that he’s 6’5” before on more than one occasion such as posting the video and even his quote.
viper said on 25/Mar/19
He was documented at 6ft 4 3/8ths too.

If we are saying that is a 2 inch error, then maybe other listings have potential for error

And he looks nowhere close to it. That's the rub.
viper said on 25/Mar/19
Jackson said on 24/Mar/19
There is absolutely no way this guys over 6’2.5” in my opinion. He’s like The Rock.... trying to say he’s 6’5” absolute nonsense. I could be wrong but I just don’t see him more than 6’2.5”


You're not far off. He looked 6-1.5-6-2 in person with perfect posture
Sakz said on 25/Mar/19
@viper Rob wouldn't gain anything by wanting to make him taller. At the end of the day it is his site so he wouldn't blatantly inflate people. I mean he even states small fractions like a 1/4 on this site so that should tell you something. Pictures don't always do justice with height and even supposed measurements can have errors.
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Rob: I think listing him at the flat 6’3” would’ve been better. It’s still too high but at least it’s closer to his actual height and is something that could be down voted or up voted to hit both extremes. I mean it’s hard to still believe any chance of 6’3.5 when he measured 6’2 3/8 and looked that much shorter than a 6’5.75 guy on video standing as close to him as he was
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Viper: I don’t think Rob is grasping at straws but for some reason, he doesn’t believe Merriman is as low as he looks. Now it could be the result of Merriman not admitting to it and the fact that he has a higher measurement on the books. But I do agree with you that Merriman isn’t as tall as he is listed here and I really do think that if Rob were to be as accurate as possible with the listing that Merriman needs the downgrade

@Rob: in regards to the picture with bennett, that was as close to the perfect gauge of height as you get. They were standing right in front of one another and Merriman had a hard time reaching eyebrows. And they were standing in similar stances like Viper also mentioned
Editor Rob
Merriman is quite interesting because of the inconsistencies in what has been published for his height. He doubled down on the premise he is 6ft 4 range with that video.

Is he a height frauder? Did the NFL give him 2 extra inches on purpose? If that were the case, then it means the NFL's reputation for reporting actual measured heights from the combine is called into question.
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Viper: that’s also assuming Barkley is still that height today. That’s nothing close to only 1” between them
viper said on 25/Mar/19
Nowhere even close to 6-3.5 with Barkley.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Mar/19
@viper
I don't believe that Rob purposefully tries to make Shawne taller, but he's probably still not convinced that he's 6'2"-6'3" range. I wouldn't force Rob to downgrade Shawne if he really doesn't want to. That still doesn't change the fact that the 6'3.5" listing is inaccurate.
Canson said on 24/Mar/19
@Viper: no disrespect but that was a bit disrespectful toward Rob. I have a ton of respect for you as a poster, as well but that was unnecessary, V. At least Rob has, to his credit, offered an explanation each time as to why he believes Merriman is the height that he thinks he is in the pictures. He also has been very professional and respectful toward you when he’s interacted with you in the past, even giving you the benefit of the doubt in other instances. Sure I don’t agree with him on the topic of Merriman’s height, either, but I respect his views. I agree with you on Merriman’s height but I wouldn’t go and say that Rob has an agenda or that he’s making excuses because that is simply speculation and is not fair to Rob as he is actually the most objective person here on this site. He’s never exhibited any behavior to suggest otherwise. Nothing suggests that he has a hidden agenda. He has a delicate balance as he has to consider the potential risks of liability and protecting the site and posters, as well as trying to be as accurate as possible.
Jackson said on 24/Mar/19
There is absolutely no way this guys over 6’2.5” in my opinion. He’s like The Rock.... trying to say he’s 6’5” absolute nonsense. I could be wrong but I just don’t see him more than 6’2.5”
viper said on 24/Mar/19
Rob, all he needs is a downgrade to
6-2.5 which would be closer to the truth.

And he wasn't even measured that tall.
viper said on 24/Mar/19
Rob, you're great, but you are grasping at straws here for whatever reason.

Canson what do you think
viper said on 24/Mar/19
If he's disadvantaged it's just barely that it's not even worth discussing.

Everyone else would agree he looks 6-2 max in both pics.
Editor Rob
You can compare his head size Click Here.

I would have guessed Omar had more than a 1/4 inch advantage from seeing the photo on alamy.
viper said on 24/Mar/19
I've never seen Rob cover for a guy like this where it was documented he was measured 6-2 and looks 6-2
Editor Rob
He was documented at 6ft 4 3/8ths too.

If we are saying that is a 2 inch error, then maybe other listings have potential for error too.
viper said on 24/Mar/19
What do you think of Rob's excuses with those pics which are laughable.

Almost like he has an agenda to make Shawne taller.

Like I said, he was measured at 6-2, looks 6-2, yet is listed at an insane 6-3.5. He wasn't listed that high in college!!!

When it was found out LT measured 6-2 he listed him as that. When it was found out Shannon Sharpe was measured at 6-1, instantly changed to 6-1.
Editor Rob
Well you posted a couple of photos with Shawne at a disadvantage, I'm simply offering an explanation.

In the same way I could say With Tim maybe even though they are same distance, Shawne might have road advantage and gaining a couple of inches over Tim.
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
@Rob: in the video with Martellus Bennett the two are right in front of one another. In that case, it’s still at absolute worst a 3” difference. Rising Viper Christian and I saw 3.5 or 4 whereas you saw 3” max but it honestly looks minimum 3” not max. I could buy 3” as a possibility though
Editor Rob
I can see how you would see anywhere in 3-4 inch range, though it's a shame they never stood side by side with same posture, that would have been interesting to see if it was as much as 3.5 inches.
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
@Viper: next to those two he actually looks the height you saw him 6’1.5-6’2”. Castillo is likely 6’2.25 or 6’2 3/8 and Merriman is about 1/2”-1” shorter. Then again could be the angle of the camera too but it’s clear that he’s at least 2” shorter than Jackson
viper said on 22/Mar/19
Just met George Rogers. He looked exactly like Merriman, 6-1.5-6-2
Canson said on 22/Mar/19
@Viper: maybe also 6’2.75 and 6’2. You said before you were 6’3.5 and 6’2.75 so if Merriman is an inch shorter than you 6’2.5 and 6’1.75 add up
viper said on 22/Mar/19
How is he anywhere close to 6-3.5 with 6-2.6 Luis Castillo and 6-4.3 senior bowl measured Vincent Jackson.
Click Here
viper said on 21/Mar/19
Rob he's clearly over 3 inches shorter than both of those 6-5 guys.
Editor Rob
You have to account for distances, and angles.
viper said on 21/Mar/19
Rob, most here think he's 6-2
viper said on 20/Mar/19
Rob, explain how he looks nowhere, nowhere in the same universe as 6-3.5 with 6-5.1 morning measured Nelson Rosario on a flat stage.
Click Here
Editor Rob
That angle isn't going to help Merriman's height, it's so low that if you were 1 inch further from the camera it would knock a lof of height from the person further away.
viper said on 20/Mar/19
NFLcombineresults has Star at 6-4, pro day blog page at 6-3.2, and draftscout 6-2.4
viper said on 20/Mar/19
I really doubt he's 6-3 out of bed.

6-2.5 out of bed imo.
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
@Rob: Viper’s pics with Omar Benson aren’t simply because of the angle. Merriman also looked several inches shorter than 6’5.1 Nelson Rosario. Rosario was a morning measurement. But Merriman looked a lot shorter than 6’4.75 combine/ 6’4 3/8 Senior Bowl measured Vincent Jackson. There he looked at least 2” shorter than him. Then you factor how he looks with Drew Brees. It’s entirely possible Brees isn’t as tall as he’s listed. Many say he’s 5’11” then how he looks with 5’5.5 Darren Sproles and last but not least the video below with Martellus Bennett 6’6.1 and 6’5.75 are his two measurements on record. I’m not sure about 6’1.5-6’2” but He can look it with Bennett and look 6’2.5 other times as well

Click Here
Editor Rob
Well I don't think Shawne is nearer, but a bit further.

How much it can effect things is something that varies.
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
@Shane: well said and you hit every point very nicely and fluidly. Viper was saying that when he met him in person that he looked 6’1.5-6’2” and coincidentally that’s how he looked next to Martellus Bennett. Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine and then Viper brought up a team measurement with the cowboys where he was down at 6’5.75. but that’s believable because the combine is held around an hour out of bed so he would have already lost height by that stage. Bennett typically looks the size of someone like Anthony Joshua or maybe Gronk. At that stage, say if I measured 6’3.75 at a normal low as opposed to 6’4.25, I would still claim 6’4” or about despite maybe even coming down to 6’3.5 at an extreme low. I claim 6’4 in real life now but only because I round down since that’s what I’m closest to, although at an extreme low which I hit very rarely, I do come down to about a mm over 6’4 although I don’t usually consider that as much.

I’ve seen Merriman but wasn’t close enough to him to gauge it admittedly. In college he was listed 6’3 and pros 6’4”. Even seeing him in other pics, I still think that 6’1.5-6’2 is a bit low for him at times but he did look 4” shorter than Bennett at points in the video then 3.5 other times. Rob mentioned that 3” max is what he saw between he and Bennett. I have a hard time seeing less than that so I find him only going down to 6’3.5 as a bit odd even if using the 6’6 1/8 for Bennett. It really looks more than 3”. That’s closer to 4”. But I would probably go with 6’3 if Rob were accounting for that video. He has at times looked taller than 6’3” to what Rob is saying but doubt he is. Next to Drew Brees he looks 6’2” and change or 6’2”.

Below is the video of he and Bennett. The best parts of judging the height difference is when they were both punching the bag around 3:00 onward. Both are barefoot. I personally agree with your estimate. I have estimated 6’2-6’2.5 as well and I think the 6’2 3/8 was his actual measurement at the Pro Day. I think 6’2.5 would be the better listing here over 6’3 or 6’3.5 but 6’3” is even more reasonable since a lot of other guys get early morning listings too but theirs are at least barefoot (presumably). I think Merriman got the boost due to him being small for a Defensive End as Michael Sam also did. Sam is 6’1” at a low next to the Rock and Sam got measured early morning at his Senior Bowl at 6’1 5/8 and 6’2” at the combine. Viper and I both Doing comparisons senior bowl was early morning that year as well as the measurements were identical for most players to where they were for the combine. Also look at Carson Wentz a couple years back. His combine and senior Bowl were also identical and they mentioned for the senior bowl that he took his physical “this morning” the day he did it.

Click Here
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
@Christian: looking at the angle and the possibility of Sproles having advantage that’s possible. I could’ve even seen a half inch less 6’2-6’2.5 as opposed to 6’2.5-6’3”. Either way Merriman is still way overlisted. My guess is that 6’2 3/8 is his actual measurement per The Pro Day. If that were a morning height it means he’s only 6’2” flat most likely. 6’2 3/8 was likely changed to 6’4 3/8
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
@Rob: what Christian is saying is correct though. The NFL does scree up and I’m sure that they do that on occasion. Viper already pointed this out before but I will again below. Look at Julian Peterson.

Click Here

His combine measurement is 6’5 1/8 (6051) to be exact and the league has always listed him at 6’3”

Click Here
Shane said on 20/Mar/19
@Rob I think it is basically zero chance Merriman would agree to a height measurement with you simply because guys that strongly claim shoe heights without admitting it is a shoe height really value their height. So he is a guy that isnt going to do this. No chance. As for his height, after looking at lots of data, this thread, photos etc it seems quite obvious he is right around his 6'2 4/10" pro day measurement and the combine at 2 inches higher was undoubtedly, no question in error. So I am saying using your afternoon height standard he is 6'2 1/4" range. 6'3" range out of bed.
Shane said on 20/Mar/19
@Viper where are you finding all the different measurements for Star? As for Merriman, seems safe to say he falls under 6'3" barefoot.
Shane said on 20/Mar/19
The instagram video saying 6'4 1/2" does not help. Doesnt show his feet and in America nurses often measure in shoes OR allow to measure in shoes by request.
viper said on 20/Mar/19
Rob, how is he anywhere CLOSE to 6-3.5 with 6-5.5 Omar Benson.

Click Here
Editor Rob
He could be further from the camera and have less sneaker, the pavement could be flat.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Mar/19
@viper
At most I can see 6'3" for Merriman in that pic, but 6'2.5" is just as possible.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 19/Mar/19
@Rob
It's closer to the truth, but it's still not quite the truth. The truth is that he was measured 6'2 3/8".
Editor Rob
Any listing under 6ft 4 is really saying the NFL have screwed up and their combine was either wrong or a preferential measurement.
viper said on 19/Mar/19
He definitely needs an inch downgrade to 6-2.5
Canson said on 19/Mar/19
@Viper: agreed but could even see the argument for 6’2” there. And the 5’5.5 senior bowl just supports that guys are measured very early in the AM at the combine because Sproles was said to be 5’6 1/8” there. Sounds a bit like Murray this year. He never looks more than low or mid 5’9”
Canson said on 19/Mar/19
Still overlisted but better than 6’4”. 6’3” would be the catch all
viper said on 19/Mar/19
1 more inch to go Rob.

6-2.5 is closer to the truth.
viper said on 19/Mar/19
Merriman looks 6-2.5 MAX with 5-5.5 senior bowl measured Darren Sproles.
Click Here

Merriman has better posture.
Canson said on 18/Mar/19
@Rob; I meant the video with 6’6 1/8 (morning) measured Martellus Bennett. Viper provided a source of Bennett measuring 6’5.75 later in the day but since you said Merriman is around 3” shorter, to avoid a drastic downgrade, 6’3” is fair. 6’3 1/2” puts him at 2.25” shorter which he’s obviously not. There’s at least 3” there between them
Editor Rob
Well I am giving him 6ft 3.5 overall just now, because it could be closer to the truth...
viper said on 18/Mar/19
Rob, he looks SHORTER than 6-2.5 barefoot with Bennett.

6-2.5 is a compromise
viper said on 18/Mar/19
6-3.5-6-3.75 is pure fantasy, especially when he was listed at 6-3.

Miko hasn't seen the Merriman-Bennett video where he looks 6-2 barefoot
Editor Rob
His posture with Bennett wasn't great, but then 6ft 3.5 is a figure that I can buy for him, for now.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Mar/19
@Rob
Then why not? If 6'2.5" or even 6'3" is too offensive of a listing, then 6'3.5" is a good start. A downgrade for him is long overdue.
miko said on 17/Mar/19
6'3.5/6'3.75.
Canson said on 17/Mar/19
@Rob: if you’re gonna use the video at the doctor’s office, it’s also fair to include the video Viper posted with Martellus Bennett. While the former supports his 6’4” listing the latter aligns with what he was measured at his Pro Day 6’2”. It’s fair if you’re listing the Doctor video
Editor Rob
The description is reserved mainly for describing or mentioning quotes, which is why it is worth mentioning he is trying to insist he is 6ft 4 at that measurement. I already uploaded the 6ft 2 screencap from the news archives.
Canson said on 17/Mar/19
6’4 Is pure fantasy. He’s at most 6’2 range. Honestly he looked what Viper said in the video with Martellus Bennett
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 17/Mar/19
@Rob
How about a 6'3 3/8" listing for now, if you don't wanna list him at 6'3"? He has both 6'4 3/8" and 6'2 3/8" listings so it'll be a fair split. I virtually haven't seen any posters here who actually believe he's a legit 6'4".
Editor Rob
a compromise listing of 6ft 3.5 is possible, but 2.5 I have yet to be convinced he's as short as that.
viper said on 15/Mar/19
cmillz he looked 6-1.5-6-2 up close with perfect posture.

High time Rob puts him at 6-2.5
cmillzz said on 14/Mar/19
6’4 is way too high... there’s no way he’d be eye to eye with someone like Tom Brady.
Canson said on 13/Mar/19
@Rob: I’m willing to bet that the NFL isn’t going to respond. They won’t want to expose what is potentially done on occasion or that maybe the made a mistake. I bet if you get a response at all that it will be that he measured at 6’4 3/8” which he looks nothing like even if that’s out of bed because like Andrea even believed, that would make him a weak 6’4” guy 6’3.5-.75 which he certainly doesn’t look with Martellus Bennett who Viper also showed measured 6’5.75 a different time later in the day. Even if it’s not 4” between them, it’s definitely not less than 3”. I think 6’3” flat is even better than 6’3”. At least that was referenced in the comments on his picture although that looks like a shoe height more than anything.
Editor Rob
Well unfortunately they didn't respond (but then that is par for the course as soon as something like CelebHeights is mentioned 😆), and it's not like the request is unreasonable...

Rob I would just go ahead and put him at 6-2.5 now.

NFL isn't going to tell you anything.
Canson said on 11/Mar/19
@Viper: Booger admitted to 6’0” actually when the Saints played the Redskins on MNF when Drew Brees broke the record. He said he’s 6’0” and that Brees looked no more than 5’10”. Booger looks a solid 6’0” with Jason Witten who looks the solid 6’5” he looked in the height listing you provided with Martellus Bennett. That’s 5” between them

Canson and Christian, go look up Chargers versus Cowboys 2009 on YouTube.

@Christian and Viper: if we factor a morning measurement in, it comes close to 2”. Some are even as high as 3”. Tobias Harris shows a 6’6.5 and he’s listed 6’9” now. He’s probably just a flat 6’6” at a low

@Viper: see how early the NFL measurements take place. If the measurements are published before 9 am it shows how early they actually got measured. That number seems high even for a morning height. I’m equally surprised and skeptical being those close to him and who have seen him say that he’s shorter than that
Canson said on 1/Mar/19
@Viper: maybe he was listed as 6’7” in basketball then. But different sports will list people differently. Heck, Kyler Murray was listed 5’11” in Baseball and 5’10” in Football at the University of Oklahoma. I wonder when he was measured on Ourlads? From what we’ve seen Combine listings have had a wide variance from a Senior or Pro Bowl measurement. Meaning even with 6’6.25 and 6’5.25 measurements I don’t completely rule out the fact that at a low he still may be the latter.

@viper
Briscoe's 2013-2015 measurements have got to be errors. There's no way a 6'1" guy would be 6'3"-6'3.5" in shoes, let alone basketball shoes. If the pattern's reversed (his measurements getting taller as the years go on) then maybe that indicates growth, but that's not the case. His earlier measurements are taller than his newer ones.
Canson said on 24/Feb/19
@Viper: I spoke with my friend who has played ball with him and he said that they’re similar today. My friend is a solid 6’7” at a low. He said it’s possible that it’s half inch difference max but they may be about the same height still. I don’t know if Buck was ever much over 6’7” but I don’t deny that at his peak he was a legit 6’7” guy if not a hair over. I doubt he was 6’8 however

I don't think it's really defamatory to believe that an athlete's using steroids, especially when you have probable causes. It's not like it's a felony or anything. Some people have accused famous people of doing much worse.

Canson I was watching an old Maryland basketball game and Buck Williams looked slightly taller standing next to 6-8 listed Terry Gates at the free throw line.
Canson said on 22/Feb/19
@Christian: that 1cm could’ve made the difference. If he wore boots especially he may have been say 6’4.25 with the extra cm and really could’ve been upper 6’2 range barefoot in the morning
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Feb/19
@viper
I doubt Merriman's anything over 250 lbs today. He has slimmed down some since he retired. As for his doctor's measurement, occasionally doctors and nurses do mismeasure people when they don't bring the stadiometer's board all the way down to the head. One time I was overmeasured by about 2cm, but I had thick hair back then. Merriman didn't have thick hair to the point of being overmeasured by 2cm. If he was overmeasured, I doubt it was more than a cm.
viper said on 20/Feb/19
Ironically the only reason I saw him up close in 2006 was because he was suspended for steroids attending the Maryland-Miami football game.
Canson said on 20/Feb/19
@Viper: no less than 3” for sure and that looks low. Looks over 3” really
Canson said on 20/Feb/19

Hard for me to see why this guy is listed above 6'3". He was listed as that in college, and very rarely can manage to look more than that (quite honestly, he looks 6'2").
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Feb/19
@Rob
But that doesn't mean anything. Some people can weigh heavier than what they seem. 272 at 6'2"-6'3" isn't unbelievable at that size, especially when you notice how he was a lot bigger in 2005 than he is in recent years. If you're not even gonna list him at 6'3", then you should at least list him 6'3 3/8" here, since both the 6'2 3/8" and 6'4 3/8" listings have been highly debated on this site. That would only be fair.

Or he was just flat out measured wrong.

It's happened to me at the doctor at least 3 times. Both more and less

Canson said on 19/Feb/19
@Viper: I would hope that nobody would do that. However, if someone has very poor posture and a significant footwear advantage on someone it’s entirely possible. However, you say that he had decent posture. But it’s possible he’s 6’2-6’2.5 range and you mistook him for being shorter

And your weight at either 6-2 or 6-3 isn't much difference anyway.

He was found to have steroids in his system.
Canson said on 19/Feb/19
@Rob: the weight may be embellished as well, who knows. But remember that Merriman was banned for using steroids. I’m not bashing him for it but it is a fact that he did get caught using them. And he did have a listing at the Pro Day and before the draft of 6’2, 274lbs. Not to mention he was only listed 6’3” at Maryland not 6’4”. I highly doubt he grew as it is more than likely that he was already slightly over listed in college. He was a junior when he came out so likely was done for quite some time growing

As far as the references above, it’s fair to add the video with Bennett as it matches up closely with his Pro Day just as you said the video with the nurse “claiming” to measure him aligns closely with his Combine.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Feb/19
@Canson
I give him 6'2.25" worst case. A 6'2.25" guy can easily be mistaken for 6'2" flat. My theory is that he was measured 6'4.25" in the morning with shoes on, and was rounded up to 6'4.5" by the nurse. Some shoes can easily give 1.25" of course, so he would be 6'3" barefoot at morning, and you subtract 3/4" so you get 6'2.25" at night.
viper said on 18/Feb/19
At 6-3 I can measure 6-5.5 in my brother's bigger shoe size raising my toes inside.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Viper: I agree with Rob that at times he can give off a shorter impression but I also agree that he’s 6’2 range versus 6’4 or even 6’3.5. This is easily one of the worst listings on the site. Even 6’3 is better
Editor Rob
The thing is, I don't know if anybody would offer help in trying to see what his actual records say. Would the NFL admit to a mistake...
viper said on 18/Feb/19
Im not gonna mistake a 6-4 guy with perfect posture for 6-1.5-6-2 up close.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Viper: that’s interesting. Lamont Jordan shows a 5’10 1/4” combine listing. That goes to show that they aren’t always accurate.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Rob: it’s entirely possible that the 6’2 3/8 he measured at the Pro Day is the same measurement he received at the Combine. Viper also posted where Julian Peterson shows 6’5.1 at the combine but is really only around 6’3” as that’s what he’s listed at in the NFL. It’s more than likely that his measurement was 6’3 1/8 as opposed to 6’5 1/8”. Meaning he may just be 6’2.75 at a low whereas Merriman May only be 6’2” range as well. That video with Martellus Bennett who is 6’5.75 at a low is by far the best judgment as both are barefoot. That’s over 3” between them so the most I could buy is 6’2.5. Even a full 6’3” is a much better listing than this one since you said yourself that you thought it was 3” between them and Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 in the morning
Editor Rob
It's a big error if it's true. Either he was 6ft 2 3/8th or 6ft 4 3/8ths. His 274 weight doesn't make as much sense if he was only 6ft 2, but more if he was over 6ft 3.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: actually 6’2” flat is possible. if Martellus Bennett is 6’5.75 at a low which Viper provided proof of in a different post here, there is a chance of 6’2” flat for Merriman. I used to believe 6’2.5 would be the better listing. However with the video I doubt it’s more than 4” but could see 3-4” meaning 6’2.5 could be equally as feasible. One thing I’m confused on is the other video where the nurse measured him. It was likely in shoes and in the AM perhaps but that may signal more of 6’2.5ish if that’s the case

Yet I don't see you calling his unbelievable 6'4 3/8" "measurement" as "nonsense". While I don't believe he's as low as 6'2" flat, there's sure as heck of a better chance of him being that than being 6'4 3/8".

Ron, do you seriously believe this 6ft2 nonsense?
Editor Rob
People are entitled to believe whatever figure they like. There's certainly a fair amount of photos/clips which can be used to say he is under 6ft 3, but I personally haven't seen enough to think of giving him such a figure and would still say he might be a guy who walks and stands shorter than he measures.
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Rob could you post the Martellus video up top in the description. Thanks
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Agree Canson. The Martellus video is the best evidence by far since both are barefoot.
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Christian: 6’3” is a good start for him. I still believe he’s 6’2” range but we can tell for the most part that he’s not over 6’3”. I don’t understand how and why the Martellus Bennett video isn’t factored into the listing or even description since it’s clear that that is not just a 1.75” difference even assuming we are only using their combine listings when we saw that Bennett was 6’5.75 a different time later in the day. While a 3.5 or 4” difference looks most feasible I would say it is no possible way it’s less than 3”.
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Rob and Viper: being Viper also provided that Bennett is 6’5,75 at a low it’s safe to say that Merriman likely isn’t more than 6’2.75 since you alluded to 3” difference between the two. While I believe 6’2” I think then 6’3 is a good start for him. Even in the video where he was measured at the doctor we saw on the replies to him claiming 6’5” someone else said 6’3” although that looks like a shoe measurement. He’s definitely not anywhere near 6’4”.

@Mickie: it’s similar to the video with Martellus Bennett. Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine and in the link Viper provided he was 6’5.75 (they rounded him up to 6’5.8) when he was measured a different time. Even if Rising Christian Viper and I all overestimated the difference between them by a tad it’s still over a 3” difference. Even a solid 3” between them makes Merriman more like 6’2.75. I think a downgrade to 6’2.5 is the best fit but my personal opinion is he’s 6’2” based on that. Rudy Gay called him 6’2” when he met him as well

Rob - you think 6'4" might be a bit high in this video? I can't see it at 2:14: Click Here

There's a fair amount of movement between them, so I am not sure what difference there might be.

This guy was listed at 6-5 in a boxing match, could be shorter. Click Here

Here he is with Merriman. Click Here

Jefferson with 6-2 Jaylon Smith, who I've even questioned is a full 6-2.

@Viper: Sharpe I can believe as a strong 6’1” guy mainly because others are overlisted. I saw where you commented on Steve Smith. He’s 5’8” range from what I’ve seen. I agree on Strahan too 6’4 not 6’5”. Likely flat 6’4. Kobe looked 1” taller but may be the angle and may just be 2cm. You were saying he looked 6’2” in person but turned out strong 6’1. Maybe he had footwear advantage on you when you saw him. It’s like with when I saw John larroquette. I thought he was taller than my Dad but likely he had a footwear advantage when he walked past us or that he was standing straighter. It was also some 25-27 years ago when I saw him and I wasn’t as height aware as I am today which started because I see people all the time claim taller than they are and used to wonder why but now I know. As for Larroquette seeing pics on Night Court with Richard Moll I can agree with most that he looked 6’4” as opposed to almost 6’5”. At most he could’ve been my height prime 6’4.25ish

Frank Clark's height is all over the place.

6014, 6027, and listed at 6-2 in college.
viper said on 5/Jan/19
Look how "short" Malik Jefferson is at supposedly 6-2.

There's no way he's 6-2. I'd say 6-0 max, but physically looks shorter than even that at times.
viper said on 5/Jan/19
As with Shannon Sharrpe, as I said on the Mark Henry page, just because Rob thought he looked 6-2 IMO doesn't make it so. Nobody is perfect.

IMO Mark Henry is 6-1. He's been listed at 6-1.
Editor Rob
sometimes guessing from our own perspective can increase a range of error, but when you have other people whose height you know standing or interacting with a celebrity, it can be helpful.
Canson said on 4/Jan/19
@Viper: you though Sharpe was 6’2 in person right? I doubt he’s less than Rob lists him here though I’ll say that much
Canson said on 3/Jan/19
@Christian: they don’t look really big there but I will say as well that Merriman to my eyes does not look anything more proportionately than a 6’2” guy in that pic. Of course you can’t go off that strictly but he doesn’t look like a 6’4” guy either or 6’3
Canson said on 2/Jan/19
@Christian: I agree with viper. Terrell Suggs also has a good 3” on Ray minimum
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Jan/19
@viper

Lewis did measure 6'0 3/8" so it could be possible.
viper said on 1/Jan/19
6-1 Shannon Sharpe looks the same or a hair taller next to Ray than Merriman does. Click Here
viper said on 31/Dec/18
Ray Lewis is 6-0 max. 6-1 Shannon Sharpe has a good inch on him.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Dec/18
@viper

I don't think those pair of boots give him more than 1.25" though.
Canson said on 29/Dec/18
@Frost: and very few athletes (If any at all) will maintain the height that they measure at the combine throughout the day.
Frost said on 28/Dec/18
The Ray Lewis pics are the most damming because he straight up barely looks 6'3 in most of them. And we know Ray isn't his 6'1" listing and wasn't even measured at that and is more like 6'0"

Excuse me, I misread it and thought it was 6-0

Yet he's 5-10.

My brother is 6-1
Canson said on 20/Dec/18
@Viper: if you saw half inch difference with Dawson he may be 6’3.25 if you dip to 6’2.75 or maybe footwear
viper said on 19/Dec/18
Lin Dawson is listed at 6-3 but actually looked more 6-3.5. I felt like he edged me out.
viper said on 19/Dec/18
I've hung around Rickey Jackson a bit and he's a measured 6-1 and looks it. Merriman doesn't look much taller.
Christian said on 18/Dec/18
@viper

This might be a randon question, but how tall is your brother?
Canson said on 18/Dec/18
@184guy: from the video that Viper posted of Bennett and Merriman, Viper’s estimate is very believable. Viper has him 6’1.5-6’2”. Now I would say he’s a flat 6’2” more than likely as he measured 6’2 3/8 at his Pro Day. I saw where Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine but 6’5.75 another time later in the day. If that isn’t 4”, I would say it’s at least 3.5. I know Christian and Rising both also said it was at least 3.5” if not 4”. I would’ve said 4” but I’ll leave open 3.5 maybe a tad under. Maybe 6’2.25 for Merriman if the case which almost lines up with his Pro Day. I originally had him at 6’2.5 when his page came up on the site about 10 months back
viper said on 18/Dec/18
184guy2 6-7 Rudy Gay called Merriman 6-2 on Twitter.

He played a whole charity basketball game with Merriman.
viper said on 18/Dec/18
He's most definitely shorter than
6-2.75.

He looked a weak 6-2 and measured 6-2.4
184guy2 said on 16/Dec/18
@viper

I have him somewhere around 6'3. If you are 6'2.75 makes sense to think you could be taller because both of you are pretty near . Sometimes for example I think that I'm taller or as tall as a 6'1.75 friend when I'm clearly not while others I felt to be as short as a 5'11-6' guy that I know . Height perception is very trick . I'm pretty sure that almsot everytime that Rob guesses someones height , he try to use a third person to help the guess
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Viper: unfortunately some people here (won’t mention names) believe the combines and pre drafts. Even going as far as to inflate others just because so and so is “on record” at this height
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Viper: wouldn’t surprise me. Look at Dwayne Wade. No chance in hell hes close to 6’4”. Hes your height at best
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Viper: yea weak 6’8” possible. Only looked 3” taller than Barkley and wasn’t as tall as a guy like Jared Gaither I doubt. Gaither looked 6’8” next to someone I know as opposed to 6’9”
viper said on 16/Dec/18
Mickie have you seen the Martellus Bennett video with Merriman, both barefoot.

You would be hard pressed to think he's anything more than 6-2.
viper said on 15/Dec/18
Star Lotulelei's height is all over the place. Measured 6-4, 6-3.2, and 6-2.4
